Disparity and motion-in-depth processing in human visual cortex

Seminar: Oxyopia Seminar | January 27 | 11:10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 489 Minor Hall

 Anthony Norcia, Stanford University

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

The lateral separation of the two eyes creates slight retinal image differences that provide binocular disparity and binocular motion cues that can be used to extract information about depth in the world. To gain insight about the neural mechanisms involved in processing these cues, we use cue-isolating stimulation techniques to study the dynamics of brain responses to changing disparity cues,...   More >

Visual Cortical Processing: Image to Object Representation

Seminar: Redwood Seminar | January 29 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 560 Evans Hall

 Rudiger von der Heydt, Johns Hopkins University

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

Image understanding is often conceived as a hierarchical process with many levels where complexity and invariance of object selectivity gradually increase with level in the hierarchy. In contrast, neurophysiological studies have shown that figure-ground organization and border ownership coding, which imply understanding of the object structure of an image, occur at levels as low as V1 and V2 of...   More >
